COMPUTING AND DIGITALIZATION
I am interested in the latest technologies and I love to try out new tools, programs, and online services. I enjoy reading about trends and future perspectives related to digitalization. Moreover, I often use to philosophize about the future of society and humankind.
DIFFERENT CULTURES AND TRAVELLING
I enjoy traveling around the world, experiencing different cultures and meeting new people. I'm an aviation fan, but I'm increasingly reflecting on travel habits and thinking about the future and alternative ways of traveling.
I really appreciate cross cultural exchange of ideas. For instance, during my Master studies I joined the "Joint Meeting on Innovation and Leadership and Competency Development of Civil Servant for Papua Development" in Papua, Indonesia, where a got the chance to hold a presentation about the potential of bread fruit products in Europe.
FOOD, COOKING AND CULINARY ARTS
I love to cook and I appreciate high-quality foods and beverages. I am interested in food production and the origin of the products I use in my kitchen and it is my passion to discover new ingredients and techniques and I admire great chefs. Besides, I enjoy eating out, testing restaurants, and tasting different dishes from all over the world.
This picture shows a dish I enjoyed at Restaurant Stucki Basel. This restaurant is run by Tanja Grandits, one of the best female chefs worldwide, and decorated with two Michelin Stars.
I am a passionate runner and I regularly take part in competitions. Also, I go to the gym, I play tennis and on warm summer days, I enjoy swimming.
In this picture I am crossing the finish line of the Sempachersee Lauf a 10km running competition in Switzerland.
I regularly paint landscapes and like to photograph.
Here you can see one of my paintings of Llanes, Asturias, Spain.
IN THE MEDIA
In my role as Manager Sales, Marketing and Sustainability of the GAIA Hotel Basel, I was interviewed on the Greencity Basel podcast. This podcast presents companies and initiatives in Basel that are particularly committed to sustainability. The podcast is only available in German.
